This event runs from February 4 – 11.
As we are all discovering, the pandemic has caused nimble responses to change. Though Giving Hearts Day is nominally a virtual event, many nonprofits have created special in-person events like the Museum’s “Chili Bowl.” Our 2021 version will not be in-person. No seven types of scrumptious chilis. No music from The Cropdusters. No performances from Red River Dance.
What we will have are 150+ ceramic bowls created through the skill and generosity of local potters. Each bowl can be purchased for $20 – this year with credit card and check only – and will include one of five chili recipes. Additionally, there will be four $25 gift cards to Rustica Eatery & Tavern, Blackbird Woodfire, Maxwell’s Restaurant & Bar, and 46 North Pint & Provisions scattered amongst the bowls for four fortunate winners. And we will conduct our “Day” for one week – 2.4 through 2.11, ending with Giving Hearts Day. And as always, all proceeds from “Chili Bowl” support the Museum’s clay-centric education programs like the ever-popular Clay for Couples, Clay Sampler, and Plains Art Inside & Out. We invite you to give back on Giving Hearts Day, Thursday, February 11, givingheartsday.org.
This year, to accommodate social distancing, we are asking our supporters to register for a designated time. Four slots are available in 15-minute increments from 9:00 am – 2:45 pm from February 4 – 11, 2021. We ask you to please come to the Museum and pick up your bowl at your designated time. However, if you experience a conflict to do so, please contact Savannah Schultz at email@example.com to make other arrangements.
